? in the last couple of months, we have seen them back away on debt ceiling. you postponed that. where do you go? it appears that president obama has the upper hand. seems like republicans are moving in the direction of the path of citizenship. that's around if your district. what specifically are you united behind that differentiates you from the president and can get past both through the republican house which i'm sure you can do, but through the senate and signed by the president of the united states? >> the number one priority is the budget. if i that r they don't pass a budget, they won't be paid. the house laid out a plan to balance the budget which we will do in the next years am i wish the white house would put the same pressure behind the senate democrats. they haven't been introduced yet and the ceo will be at the state of the union. this is the first and foremost thing we can do is get a budget passed. the republicans are strong and that sets a plan to put us on a path to agreeing this economy. >> the economy is the largest issue that the american public cares the most about. an emot
that he says the republicans as vulnerable, as split. they caved on the debt ceiling issue. >> you're right. he definitely thinks he has their number and he will act like it. i do think there is a notion that i think you know every winning party, every second-term president i think, every victorious party in general overplays its hands, right? george bush did when he was reelected. republicans did when they seized control in 2010 of the house. i think, democrats know this feeling well. they always overplay their hand. they always read too much in an election. as i try to remind people. the president won an election, one of the consequences of which was raising taxes on the well to do. i think that is a fair consequence of an election he won and campaigned on that. he didn't win on the notion that he shouldn't address the ills of spending and debt that piled up to the degree they have. so a pox on both parties if they fail at this moment to seize this. but my worry about this otherwise very good news on the budget numbers is we're going to use it as an excuse not to address budget i

the way he did it in the debt ceiling deal? or does he think he has to ask his party to move, too? >> bret: bill, also in the excerpts he says tonight i'll lay out the additional proposals that are fully paid for. fully consistent with the budget framework. both parties agree to just 18 months ago. he says let me repeat. nothing i'm proposing tonight should increase the deficit by a single dime. there will be a lot of people who question the math, obviously, in all of that. >> there will be. but this president is extremely confident. he wants to steamroll the republicans. that is very clear on both domestic policy and foreign policy and defense policy. he agreed on nuclear weapons. he sold his starting agreement with russia saying don't worry, this is sort of the last cuts that will be negotiated and modernize the force. article in the front page yesterday no,, more cuts to nuclear weapons coming. hagel nomination along those lines. this is a president who thinks the republican party is weak and divided and unwilling to fight. a big question for me will be what will the republican response
of how we are approaching issues like the sequester, like the continuing resolution, and like the debt ceiling crisis. all of which are in front of us. to solve those, and resolve them s successfully for the country, the president does have to work with republicans. that's something he's had a hard time doing in his first term, and now it appears he doesn't want to work with them at all. and that's too bad. this isn't 2009. he doesn't have overwhelming majorities in both houses. to get something done, he'll have to bring a republican house on board to work with him, just like bill clinton did, it's not that hard to do. and he's going to have to work with a closely divided senate. so honestly, so far, we haven't seen much in terms of that tone or attitude. i'm hopeful we'll see a shift tonight, but frankly, i'm prepared to be disappointed. because i have been so far. >> well, congressman tom cole, thank you so much for coming on the program. >> thank you, chris. >>> the u.n. security council is holding an emergency meeting this morning after north korea's laterest nuclear test. early re
occur not on the debt ceiling but on the sequestration discussion. only with a balanced approach in an orderly way takes care of the alternative minimum tax. it takes care of the other cats and dogs that are out there. can you not have the major disruptions by get to where everybody is where they want to go? they would let you pick one where they do not need to raise revenues or they do not have a spending problem. both are patently incorrect. tomorrow is the state of the union address. the president has an opportunity to use the leadership of his office that only the president of united states can use. i think this is very much open to president obama as he takes to the house. he talks about the desire to work together for a true balanced approach, not a balanced approach that is not balanced. he could be met halfway by john boehner and the house republicans. that saves the country. it is my pleasure to call up my former budget committee chairman. it is nice to be part of a group with people you have read about in history books. this fellow i did serve with. jim nussle. >> thank
the fiscal cliff, december 31, we have the upcoming concern over the debt ceiling, the continuing resolution and so forth. it seems like we've been lurching from budget crisis to budget crisis. is there any way of majoring that or do you make an attempt to major the impact on decisions made within the economy and perhaps within your models regarding investments and so forth that might drive economic outcomes? >> senator, we do think that the ongoing uncertainty about federal budget policy represents a drag on spending and thus on incomes and jobs. but we don't know how to quantify that effect. there is economic research. we've had some of this presented at our meetings of our panel of economic advisors that tries to -- starting to build some evidence about the effects that policy uncertainty on the economy have. but that's, i would say, still in a preliminary stage. we don't know how important those effects are. we think the primary source of uncertainty that's holding back household spending and business investment and hiring is uncertainty about the income the households will have and dema
